About Rachel

I recently graduated from college, where I spent a few semesters working as a tutor in the university's writing center. There, I learned how to have conversations with students about writing that enable them to actually learn the writing process at a natural pace, while still working to create strong written pieces. Tutoring sessions are, at their heart, about the students, and I believe tutors are simply there to guide students.

In addition to this exposure, I also worked on my university's student-run newspaper in various positions for three years, where I had the opportunity to mentor writers and teach them a new form of writing - journalism. I have a lot of exposure to different forms of writing, particularly those that are applicable to young adults, and hope to help teach students more about writing.

I have worked as an editor, competed (and placed) in public speaking competitions, and have completed significant coursework in English/literature classes.

I look forward to working with you to learn the writing process and feel more confident about your strengths as a communicator!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Public Speaking

I have competed in two public speaking competitions through my university after completing a public speaking course. In addition, I am a two-time national competitor in the American Moot Court Association, which is competitive speaking based in a simulated courtroom setting. I have spent years working on public speaking, and would love to help give students the confidence to speak in public.
